Stress can be a normal response in certain situations but it can also have a negative impact on life and health if it is not managed properly. Whether its financial stress, work stress, physical stress, emotional stress, or anything in between. “More than half of Americans say they fight with friends and loved ones because of stress, and more than 70% say they experience physical and emotional symptoms from it.” It may be time to do something about it.
What Stress Does To Our Body
Your body has a physiological response when it is in a stressful situation. Your nervous system releases the “fight or flight” hormones adrenaline, cortisol, norepinephrine. These hormones cause your body to breath faster, increase your heart rate, tense your muscles, and sweat. These are short-term responses to stress that can go away on its own.
However, the we can only handle high levels of stress for short periods of time. If you continue to have a stress response for a long time you can experience serious health conditions.
